P.J. Alawoya
The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute surprises and upsets.

Seventh-ranked Njardvik (9-10) used its home court advantage to challenge first ranked KR (15-4) on Friday. The visitors from Reykjavik managed to secure only one-point victory 81-80. However their fans expected much easier game. The guests trailed by 2 points after three quarters before their 27-24 charge, which allowed them to win the game. KR made 19-of-25 free shots (76.0 percent) during the game. Worth to mention a great performance of Nigerian-American forward PJ Alawoya (203-88, college: McNeese St., agency: Inception Sports) who helped to win the game recording 28 points and 9 rebounds. The former international guard Pavel Ermolinskij (202-87) contributed with 14 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists for the winners. American guard Myron Dempsey (203-91, college: Paul Quinn, agency: Mansfield and Associates) answered with 18 points and 8 rebounds for Njardvik. Defending champion maintains first place with 15-4 record. Njardvik at the other side keeps the seventh position with ten games lost. They share it with IR and Thor AK. KR are looking forward to face Keflavik (#6) at home in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Njardvik will play against Thor AK in Akureyri and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An interesting game for Tindastoll (14-5) which hosted in Sauoarkrokur 4th placed Thor Thorl (10-9). Second ranked Tindastoll managed to get a 7-point victory 83-76. It was a great evening for guard Petur Birgisson (185-96) who led his team to a victory scoring 19 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists. Bjorgvin Rikhardsson helped adding 17 points and 7 rebounds. At the losing side American guard Tobin Carberry (193-91, college: LIU Post, agency: HMS) responded with 24 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists. Tindastoll have a solid series of four victories in a row. They maintain second place with 14-5 record behind leader KR, which they share with Stjarnan. Thor Thorl at the other side dropped to the fifth position with nine games lost. They share it with Keflavik. Tindastoll will play against Skallagrimur (#10) in Borgarnes in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Thor Thorl will play at home against IR (#7) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Snaefell is still unable to win any game. This time they could not use their home court advantage losing their 19th consecutive match to fifth ranked Grindavik (11-8) 88-80 on Thursday evening. It was an exceptional evening for Lewis Clinch who led the winners and scored 34 points (!!!) and 8 rebounds. Arni Hrafnsson came up with a double-double by scoring 28 points and 10 rebounds for Snaefell in the defeat. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Grindavik moved-up to fourth place. Loser Snaefell still closes the standings. Grindavik will meet at home higher ranked Stjarnan (#3) in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Snaefell will play against Haukar (#11) in Hafnarfjordur and hopes to get finally their first victory.
Tenth-ranked Skallagrimur (7-12) was very close to win a game against third ranked Stjarnan (14-5). Stjarnan managed to secure only three-point victory 83-80. However their fans expected much easier game. Hlynur Baeringsson fired 8 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for the winners. Skallagrimur's coach Finnur Jonsson rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Stjarnan moved-up to second place, which they share with Tindastoll. Newly promoted Skallagrimur keeps the tenth position with 12 games lost. Stjarnan's next round opponent will be Grindavik (#4) on the road. Skallagrimur will play against the league's second-placed Tindastoll (#2) and hope to win that game.
The game between ninth ranked IR (9-10) and 7th ranked Thor AK (9-10) in Reykjavik on Thursday ended with biggest points difference. IR outscored guests from Akureyri 100-78.
